JESUS WARNS US SOME WILL ABANDON THE FAITH AND FOLLOW DECEIVING SPIRITS

 

Jesus Forewarns

1 Timothy 4

4 The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. 2 Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. 3 They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth. 4 For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 because it is consecrated by the word of God and prayer.

6 If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. 7 Have nothing to do with godless myths and old wives’ tales; rather, train yourself to be godly. 8 For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. 9 This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. 10 That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.

11 Command and teach these things. 12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to preaching and to teaching. 14 Do not neglect your gift, which was given you through prophecy when the body of elders laid their hands on you.

15 Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress. 16 Watch your life and doctrine closely. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.  NIVT

PRAYER: Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, guide us by your Holy Spirit to hear only Your Voice.  I pray strengthen our minds to have the mind of Christ(Romans 7:25-Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin.) (1 Corinthians 2:16-for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ) (Philippians 4:7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.)  Thank you Father for your Word, the Holy Spirit, grace, mercy, love, patience’s, and your Son, Jesus Christ.  Let those who have ears to hear (Luke 8:8Still other seed fell on good soil. It came up and yielded a crop, a hundred times more than was sown.” When he said this, he called out, “Whoever has ears to hear, let them hear.”) and let those who have eyes to see (Luke 10:23Then he turned to his disciples and said privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.) Father, you are our sustainer and provider in strength and daily needs. Praise be your Holy Name.  Thank you for everything.  Your Glory never stops amazing me.  Day to day because of You I am not dismayed.  Why? Because you are the Way (Psalm 77:19Your path led through the sea, your way through the mighty waters, though your footprints were not seen.) Jesus is the wayJohn 14:6Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Amen
